, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
obama said about these numbers this morning in ohio. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs, and this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> i want to talk about the economics and the politics of the report with our chief business correspondent ali velshi and john avalon. they're in ohio talking to the voters. ali, let's start with you since you have an economics, numbers guy here. >> yeah. >> we looked at this, and the economy stated by cnn money, they were twpg 125,000 jobs, so this number was higher at 171,000. so you have figures in august and september, also higher than we thought. what do we say about the overall growth and the health of the economy and the recovery? >> you and i talked about this before. i like the jobs creation or job loss numbers. the establishment survey more than i like the unemployment number. by the way, i feel the same way about it when it's low and when it's high. this is both ways. if you are mitt romney you get to say, the unemployment rate has gone hig
. they are on the campaign trail with four days to go into the elections. president obama has three stops in ohio. coming up in about 15 minutes here on c-span, we will take you to the first stop of the day in hilltard outside columbus. the first lady michelle obama is campaigning in virginia today. at 5:30 eastern, we will take you to petersburg where she will be speaking with supporters. tonight on c-span, mitt romney and paul brian will be joined by their wives for a rally in west chester, ohio. another big names are appearing including condoleezza rice and senator john mccain this evening at 7:30 eastern and we will have that live on c-span. while we wait to hear from president obama in ohio, part of this morning's "washington journal," good morning to you. i want to assure you that 2012 battleground map we have been featuring for the last week or so here on the "washington journal." assuring the swing states in this election. this morning on the washington journal, we want to hear from the voters in the non-yellow states. everyone else in a blue, give us a call. we want to hear what you think about cam
, everybody. i'm tom here at msnbc headquarters and we're watching president obama there in hilliard, ohio, greeting fans at a campaign there giving a stump speech and bringing up specifically parts of the jobs numbers. that is the big news we saw today. unemployment kicked up ever so slightly to 7.9%. but there was a big boost in hiring with the official number at 171,000 jobs added over the course of the month. that's much higher than expected. the analysts had predicted something lower, around 120ish. we want to bring in our morning power panel. jared bernstein, ron ensanna, cnbc contributor and author of "ohio to make a fortune from the bill biggest bailout in history" and dana se abank. >> jared, i want to start with you. we've got the numbers took front. we've got more jobs added last month than expected. but the unemployment rate picked up from september. why? >> more people entered the labor force, about 580,000 people. now, these monthly numbers jump around. and about 400,000 or so, according the to that part of the survey. the labor force stayed the same, but people in the labor
. florida, 48-47 for obama. ohio, 50-45 for obama. and finally virginia, 49-47 for obama. these three states very, very close. looking at the numbers, what do they tell you? >> reporter: they tell me, brooke, they're fascinating, in particular florida and virginia. these are the big three swing states. that's what we have been going through on the battleground bus tour. florida, virginia, ohio. mitt romney had real momentum coming out first debate. he had gotten a sizable or comfortable narrow, but narrow lead in florida, virginia, that seems to have dissipated where the two polls you mentioned have obama narrowly up and ohio has always been president obama's firewall. no republican has won the white house without winning ohio. that leaves something sizable good for chicago. there is so much noise around the polls now, the focus is on early voting and the ground game. it is no substitute for actual votes. and that's what folks of both campaigns right now. >> john avalon in the battleground bus tour in ohio. thank you. we'll shift the focus back to the aftermath, the special coverage here in
's race in ohio and mitt romney and barack obama are the candidates. maybe your mike is working. >> you're right, early voting is key. and part of that strategy is focus on two groups. what i call soft supporters, those are folks who voted for president obama in 2008, they have not seen the progress that they would have hoped to have seen, but they still support him, but they're not necessarily going to be compelled to vote early. so to push those people to the poll. the second group is newly registered voters in those key counties because they may be turned off on election day if the lines are too long, if they deal with some of the obstruction nico obstructionism that we can expect. >> as i was looking at those 106 counties, we think of them as like swing voters, but it's not really that. people have their minds made up. it's just which one of he is them that live in that county show up. is it about getting them to the polls some. >> i think so. and when we reference to these candidates, we're hearing pretty different arguments and that's because barack obama is deep into his closing
the latest polls show that the race in battle ground states like ohio have president obama leading mitt romney by five points when counting both early voters and ohioans who will actually vote on election day. but the overall race is a dead heat among ohioans who are going to cast their ballot on november 6. so how does president obama or mitt romney break the stalemate among the voters? they can basically either woo the undecideds or fire up the base. for president obama, it has become increasingly clear that the strategy is about one word, early. >> we can vote early in illinois, we can vote early in illinois. just like you can vote right now in florida. p just like you can vote early in colorado. just like you can vote early here in nevada. you can vote early. anybody who is here who has not yet voted, i want you to go vote. vote. vote. vote. vote. >> so did you get the message obama supporters some vote, vote, vote, early, early, early. it is a message directed specifically at the base. and to drive the point home about early voting, president obama went home to cast his vote this p
some impact. not good for obama. romney what to cancel appearances in ohio, which were important to him. he did go to iowa, which indicates how close iowa really is. we'll talk about that a little bit, him getting in the "des moines register" endorsement, which is important i think. the other thing romney decided to do is do fund raising in the effected states which make sense. in the end, the president of the united states is commander-in-chief. he gets to take center stage. it only helps him. >> kimberly: dana? >> dana: from a political standpoint, romney's e-mail that went out to -- i'm not on the list but a friend sent it to me saying don't donate to our campaign, if you have time and resources available send it to the red cross. check on your neighbors. from a media standpoint, this storm is rightly going to stake center stage. my sister is in colorado. if you're in colorado, swing state or any of the other swing states, the ads are unbearable in terms of the amount of negative ads. i think both of the campaigns would be smart to take negative ads off the airwaves right now. my sis
right, let's write it down. new york times, gave hard for the obama team put him up 5 points in ohio and karl rove looked specifically at that poll. overpolling, oversampling of democrats skewing the overall result. that's a fact, not an opinion. >> stuart. i've been hearing about the skewed polls for ages and here is the bottom line, every pollster worth their salt and that's most pollster, are not going to skew numbers, nobody will believe them when the numbers don't prove to be accurate. when you look at the polls the way the people's lives depend on it you're not going to-- your credibility is on the line. stuart: the is new york poll, oversampling. >> and even rasmussen said democratic turnout is going to be higher than republican turnout. >> what the polls said. >> gave it a plus 2. and stuart is asking a fact-based questioning. have you looked at the sampling methodology. >> i have. >> and did you see it could be skewed toward more democrats. >> let me tell thank you, there are certain polls that screw more democrat and some screw republican because the automated and call peop
never did anything this corrupt. >> sean: let me ask you this. ohio romney has pulled into a 2-point lead. michigan is dead even. they're sending bill clinton to minnesota, joe biden to pennsylvania. obviously the obama campaign is on defense. do you really think pennsylvania, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, and ohio, possibly romney votes? >> i'm not sure which one. you have had to check with someone like miki michael baronn that. i'm worried that the romney campaign will steal. i don't care where they're going to send biden. i'm going to wisconsin. five speeches this weeks. i'd look at illinois. democrats are massively unpopular in illinois because of quinn, because of raw rahm he e. there could be a surprise state like pennsylvania or illinois. >> sean: good to see you, ann coulter. when we come back, we continue to track the monster storm sandy. over a million and a half people are out of power and new york is being flooded. lower manhattan and the new york governor's office is reporting storm-related deaths. we have a live report coming up next, and then later, this storm is int
for the candidates to get their messages out. also, obama has the lead in virginia, 4-point lead. he's ahead in ohio. and to the extent that this -- the weather conditions in those states take the attention away from the election tmay freeze things in place. i think obama is going to win both virginia and ohio, i think it will be very, very close. i think this election's going to go doub to the wire. i suspect you will see both candidates as they readjust their schedule because of the weather, trying to pick the state where is they can have an impact. colorado is clearly in play. visix grandchildren in colrady on, i spend a lot of time out there. it's a classic swing state. i have a feeling, as the weather's bad on the east coast, you will see candidates in that part of the country. it is interesting, the implications of something like this. this is totally unexpected. but it's going to go right down to the wire. >> eric: you mentioned the storm, you mentioned the swing states. you have a bunch in the path of hurricane sandy. florida, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, north carolina, nevada and wiscons
-- >> reporter: that effort is well advised because the obama campaign has 131 field offices in ohio. compared to only 39 for romney and they're leading a robust get out the vote effort. >> come on ride the bus with us. cast your vote today. >> reporter: now, ohio's 18 electoral votes may well pave the way to the white house, but because this race is so tight, few here believe they'll know who won them on election night. >> dean, if it's so important and if in fact the ground games are so important, what's the difference in the two ground games? >> reporter: well, charlie, it's not a scientific observation but what i see is that the obama campaign is far more interested in the early voting. and the romney campaign is still in the persuading phase of this election. they're going door to door trying to get people out to early vote, but really trying to persuade them to vote either early or on election day. >> all right, thank you, dean reynolds. >>> hurricane irene cost more than $4 billion in losses when it ripped through the east coast and economists believe hurricane s
of ohio. unemployment rate is 7 percent and better than the national average. they believe in the obama camp it would be a midwestern fire for them and they will carry it and make it hard for obama to reach the electorial votes he needs to take it away from the president. >> neil: we look at the president's travel plans. i am confused of the polls. we know from karl rove. 181,000 viewer democrats turned out for early voting or to file absentee ballots. i don't know if that means anything in and of itself. but it is a gap from last time. are they talking about that or what do they think? they are. and this is why it is significant. early voting is aco part of the obama strategy to get reelected. democrats are more likely to do early vote republicans turn out on election day and not engage in early voting. the president needs a boost in ohio, florida and seeing big crowds and like in nevada out west as well the other thing to note, the president's travels were significant . they have thought if they look at polls suggesting that the president has a big lead in ohio. why is he coming here
is higher today than when barack obama took office. rich: president obama's -- the romney campaign has featured bankruptcy with the government providing guarantees proposed financing. ohio could very well decide this race. president obama returned tomorrow. governor romney later this weekend. david: thank you very much. let's bring in our panel. liz: we have jeff cleveland and fill -- the action you saw today, didn't say anything about what we may see next week and review a little perplexed? >> we sell gold and silver get liquidated. they thought that qe maybe a little shorter and its duration. as the day went on, we sell oil prices continue to decline. we sell gold and silver break down harder. that put a lot of pressure on the margin situation. liz: we need to show a gold chart. gold plummeted today. gold was up about $1700, now it is 1678. if you look at the one week, you'll get a better sense of that. what do you attribute the following gold? >> we sell strength. it was the unemployment rate not having any type of shockers whatsoever. people are concerned that vernay keys days are
't wisconsin but obama was an ohio early voting well under way including florida as candidates tried to close the deal. will the jobs report affect their vote? terry will list is with us. is this report each enough for someone who was undecided? >> i don't think so. 23 million still unemployed and underemployed. mitt romney can say the unemployment rate has gone higher. here is my take away. we have been down so long it looks like up. it is not good. if we grow every month adding 170,000 jobs it would take almost 10 years. people don't have that time. ashley: lakisha underemployment rate those who would want to work full time so 14.6%. >> with the northeast sandy affected 20 states have been a people are paying attention? but i wonder if voters are not paying attention if you have no heat or the kids cannot go to school your priorities maybe something else. we value these numbers but not every single boater boater -- voter. tonight we'll talk about the mayor and i cannot get pass this. >> new york city marathon will continue i think the phrase that i would use is tone deaf. tracy: or in sensi
mitt romney will win in a land slide. they tend to be in places for mccain and not for obama. it is hard for me to know what is going on. >> you and me both. one thing that was interesting when i listened to the president talking about early voting trend and talk up in ohio and the democratic camp is saying just to compensate for the early voting disadvantage mitt romney is out in ohio. i don't know how that extrap polate this out. he would have to get 59 percent to win the state on election day. how do you see ohio? >> i was in hamilton county, cincinnati and delaware county on monday. everywhere i went. it was enthusiasm for romney . feeling that hamilton county, cincinnati, won 28,000 votes for obama and 12 to 20,000 votes for mitt romney and if that happens you talk about a land slide. it is almost impossible for obama to suffer a 50,000 vote turn around in hamilton county and winco - win ohio. >> neil: you warned about the coming deadline yet it is getting close. as a former speaker and you know how the washington process workings. what do they do whether bark obama or m
ing average. and as for ohio this is another state where obama has never trailed and the real clear politics average -- >> the democrats' lead has shrunk. >> one at a time, one at a time. >> seven polls came out in the last 48 hours. >> but you're under 50. >> obama is leading in every single poll. >> i'll say it at this time. as listening as obama is under 50, then romney has a very good chance in these races. keith boykin, i will tell you this, it may be true that money can't buy love, but money certainly can help in these close political races. i've got to leave it there. keith, robert, jonathan, thank you, gentlemen. up next, even if you don't live in the northeast, this storm will still have a major impact on you. steve leishman is back after the break to help you prepare. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ]
that president obama has in ohio and to a certain degree when it comes to the storm, so there are political ramifications clearly, but also some practical ramifications as well, and as ana marie said a few moments ago, chaos looms, unfortunately. >> anne, in terms of the presidential prospective, president obama just finished talking with craig fugate and the director of fema, and we're waiting for the tape to turn around. we'll get comments in a moment. how much does this help him potentially? this platform for which he is the president of the united states during a really terrible time for about a sixth of the country? >> i think robert is right. he does have a chance to look presidential, although being the president, he gets to look presidential whenever he wants. he has to pay extra mind to the storm and be seen as actually presiding over it, doing his best to make sure he's on top of it. that's a lot to ask somebody a week and a couple of days just before the election. i think that probably the bigger danger, in addition to the ones that the other two mentioned, people simply aren't g
. >> that's the point i was going to make. the obama campaign in say the state of ohio is investing $50 million in gotv activity. unless they pull voters to the polls the natural enthusiasm advantage the republicans enjoy could give governor romney a slight edge. the gotv effort i firmly believe is stronger on the democratic side than the republican side. it is not ideology, it is just fact. if that happens it could give obama a very, very narrow margin. martha: gotv is get-out-the-vote for those folks that haven't had a fill of their coffee this morning. >> absolutely. martha: monica, read these for me. >> i think the republicans enjoy a strong intensity gap. when we talk about get-out-the-votes effort that is incredibly foorn but the the democrats enjoyed four years ago which has swung in the other direction is so intense. we saw from gallup earlier this week, martha we're looking at all-time highs in terms of enthusiasm, highest of any point gallup has been polling. you look at that. then you combine that with numbers you put out, martha, about the major issues driving voters to the
that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michigan, minnesota, a couple points up, a couple points up in pennsylvania. ever so slight obama lead there. but it could go either way. martha: monica? >> yeah. what is interesting we're seeing the traditional tightening of a race as we get closer and closer to election day. what is interesting that independent number you put you, martha, governor romney still has a very healthy lead among independents and doug mentioned the swing states, when you look at critical swing states states of ohio, governor romney is leading among independents by six points n virginia he is leading among independents by a staggering 21 points among independents. also in florida he is leading by about five points. races are won in the middle. those independents will really decide this race and they seem to be trending toward governor romney. martha: let's look at some of these other numbers. i was fascinated by these when they came out in the evening
in the write-up note that i do think barack obama is still ahead in the state. and as you mentioned, you can always follow their feet where they're going. mitt romney's spending a huge amount of time in ohio in the next few days, as is, i would say, barack obama. i think both campaigns recognize this is a not only a close race, because there are a lot of close races in states, but this is a place that mitt romney probably has to have. so, if ever there's going to be a place where they both fight because of the stakes are so high, i think ohio's it. i think it belongs where we now have it, which is in those eight states, ones we know, florida, new hampshire, iowa, virginia, nevada, colorado, new hampshire, i think ohio belongs in that group. i put it on myself i should have put it in there a few days before now. >> mark halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral vot
than four years. that is a delta of 250,000 from democrats to republicans and remember obama won it by 262,000. if you need evidence of how energized the republican base is in ohio. >> steve: lookk at gretch, your home state of minnesota and new mexico, romney people are putting ads on those states which had been, they figured they were solidlyy blue. maybe not so solidly. apparently romney is running ads in detroit. they think there is a chance to actually pull something off there. >> very interesting. going back to hurricane sandy. wiping out a lot of towns on the jersey shore . look at before and after pictures of the boardwalk in atlantic city. i spent a lot of time there over the years certainty're starting since i was three years old. it is completely wiped out and people wondering, how can we rebuild? joining us live from reeds beach. genier davis. >> good morning to you. i talked to one full-time residents of the summer time community. he worries whether or not they will get back. it was a sanct for the families coming here for generation and watching the children watchin
-- why ohio? why choose ohio? >> right. because the storm is kind of -- >> not in ohio. >> you ask how do you -- how does president obama and mitt romney handle this politically? the answer i think can be summed up in one word delicately. it's a very fine and thin line. it's easier from a political perspective from president obama because he goes about the duties of being president hp he called chris christie, mike bloomberg, cory booker, governor cuomo making sure he knows everything going on the ground, making sure federal assistance gets where it's needed. it's much harder for mitt romney in that he can't really campaign and yet, he doesn't want to totally disappear and crede the last five days of television coverage. it's still the president of the united states acting like the president of the united states. it's when -- it's how you get into situations like we saw in ohio today. i don't -- i don't question the motives. i think in a short period of time what mitt romney was trying to do is how can we thread this very fine line. so i sort of understand in that way. it's just difficult
president obama as we await his reaction to the jobs number in hilliard, ohio. as soon as he is brought to the podium, we'll bring you there live. >>> trip adviser rocketing back botch the $30 level at which they debuted last december. the co-found er stopped by to talk exclusively to us on "squawk on the street." >> i think it's a testament to the momentum that we're on now, so it's been less than a year since we've been a public company and we've shown growth in literally all of the interesting metrics whether it's traffic or membership or social contribution and certainly revenue leads to our clients. >> you became a public company, spun out of ex pepedia. why do you think you have done so well when others have not? >> we built a real moat around competition that says if you really want to find out what a hotel is like or a restaurant or an attraction come to trip adviser. the sheer scale makes it so interesting for consumers because it gives the broadest what should i do, where should i stay? and that's what makes people want to come back and contribute to the fly wheel effect, the
crisscrossed the country. rich edson with the latest. >> focus on ohio that could very well decide this election, president obama focusing on the auto industry, and significant auto manufacturing base taking credit for the survival of gm and chrysler. >> i understand governor romney has time in ohio because he was against it in the auto industry and hard to run away from that position when you're on videotape saying the words let detroit go bankrupt. dennis: geometrics or went bankrupt a merge with help in federal financing. governor romney's plan would government providing guarantees for post-bank of the financing. meanwhile in wisconsin governor romney hit his campaign closing argument. >> he is so sure of that he has one big plan for the next four years. he wants to take all the ideas from the first term, the stimulus, the borrowing, obamacare, all the rest and do it all over again. that idea can be boiled down to four words, more of the same. dennis: president obama spends all day in the buckeye state. back to you. cheryl: more breaking news continuing into fox business. fema n
amp, does that help president obama? >> no, because voters are smart. i don't buy that others in the media have that cynicism that somehow voters conditions make that connection. you look at ohio, virginia, what we've done in wisconsin, it didn't turn around until the last two years, less than two years. and it turned around because republican governors came into those states, got the economy improving again. think about how much better it could be if we put a republican governor, a former republican governor, in charge as our president. that's the clear difference. at the convention when i spoke, i mentioned that night at my speech that if you compare all the states in america with the ones led by republicans compared to those led by democrats, the unemployment rate in republican led students was one point lower than those led by democrats. and voters understand that.was than those led by democrats. and voters understand that. >> is the hurricane having any impact on on the presidential election some there's been lots of questions does it help the president, does it hurt the
-46 lead over president obama. in the battleground state of ohio, a poll of likely voters gives the president a 48% to 45% edge. and a star tribune poll gives the president a three-point advantage. but that's also within the poll's margin of error. super stom sandy is bearing down on election 2012. both campaigns don't want to bother you while you watch the water rise in your basement. but the storm is suspending early voting and the optics of both campaigns, president obama has a quick campaigning and run to country. and mitt romney can't attack the president while he's trying to steady the ship, or can he? with us is lz granderson and will cain. thanks for joining us, guys. >> we just heard the president has decided not only to cancel a florida campaign appearance he had scheduled forred to but also canceling another one scheduled for washington so he can be in d.c. and keep the ship steady. i suppose that's a great idea, right, lz? >> it's the smart idea. that's what the president of the united states should do in a situation like this. we're talking about a storm that could
. as for the white house, president obama canceled his campaign events. he was supposed to go to ohio. three days the president will be canceling his campaign tour. we are not sure as to whether or not that romney will continue. we have heard from the romney campaign that paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin tomorrow. we know that that is going forward. as far as washington dc is concerned, tour buses rolling by. all the major arteries open. the two imagine that, lawmakers not getting anything done. >> well, they were going to be here anyway stormer no storm. thank you, rich. down in washington. dagen: let's talk about this. we are all recovering from hurricane sandy today. we can't forget that we today from now will be election day. getting every voter outcome and joining us is brad blakeman. this election is going off next week. come hell or high water, excuse my language. >> you bet. this is a real test of both parties and their organization. first of all, being interested in helping your neighbors. as we move past in the recovery phase, as he pointed out from election day is coming. wha
. that will be at noon eastern. she's speaking with supporters in columbus, ohio. live today at noon here on c-span. president obama yesterday spent the afternoon with new jersey governor chris christi touring the damage across the state's coast left from hurricane sandy after surveying some of the wreckage and speaking with victims of the storm. both men spoke briefly about the coordination efforts between federal and local officials. >> good afternoon, everybody. thank you-all for coming today. i want to thank the members who are here as well. i want to thank the president. we spent significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline. we were on marine one together, to show the president that personally. we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. then going over to the shelter here, to be able to meet with folks, have them see the president and his concern. the concern all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible. we have lots of challenges. our challenge now is to get back to normalcy. the things we need to do
. >> callous. >> "the new york times." it's all up to ohio. it's been all up to ohio for months now. on wednesday a new cbs poll showed obama leading romney by five points in the buckeye state. in response, romney officials began to suggest maybe it was really all about pennsylvania. nobody took them seriously. mitt is bringing half the republican party to ohio on friday to kick off the new romney/ryan real recovery road rally. everybody's coming. and the sons, paul ryan, paul ryan's wife who we have yet to actually meet, rudy giuliani, a couple olympic medalists, every elected official except he who must not be named in new jersey. sudden plans for a road trip are usually the sign of a pressing need to escape reality. >> is meatloaf going to be there? >> as long as he brings those pipes. >> all right. they should bring chris. this chris christie thing, is it really a big problem for mitt romney? why can't he now campaign with chris christie and be proud of it? >> it is a brig problem. >> i don't get it. that's a problem. that's the problem. >> literally, you have that image of them
there and ohio is important. >> yeah. i think that today the storm will have some positive impact for obama because he's going to be moving through the state with governor christie, a symbol of bipartisanship that will help both of them and being presidential and dealing with the storm. that sort of thing always helps an incumbent. but i think on balance, it's going to be a negative for obama for a couple of reasons. one is the democrats rely on early voting. a lot of their vote is sort of machine vote, like nursing homes or like union halls. they'll put their people in a bus and move them to a polling place and get them out. they rely on early voting for that. and it will be hard to do that in pennsylvania, virginia and a couple of other places. the other thing which is more important really is that whenever conditions are averse, the voters that persevere are the motivated ones, the ones that really care and the polling shows there is a big gap in perseverance and caring and motivation between the republicans and the democrats this year. so i think in pennsylvania and ohio and virginia, t
